Anker, the world’s #1 mobile charging brand, today announced an updated line of hubs and docking stations designed for business professionals looking to add future-proof productivity tools using the latest USB4 and Thunderbolt 4 technologies. At the forefront of this announcement, the Anker 568 USB-C Docking Station (11-in-1, USB4) and the Anker 778 Thunderbolt Docking Station (12-in-1, Thunderbolt 4) offer business professionals connectivity options for the most intensive tasks.
The Anker 568 and 778 docking stations were designed to provide business professionals with the most cutting-edge connectivity tools for enhanced productivity with graphic design, video editing, and drafting including CAD modeling. Both docking stations are equipped with a multitude of ports, including USB-C Power Delivery, HDMI, Ethernet, and multiple USB-A and USB-C data ports. The 568 also features two DisplayPort connections, while the 778 offers a Thunderbolt down-stream port for even more connectivity options. This allows users to connect to a wide range of devices including monitors, keyboards, mice, and external hard drives.
For business professionals or professional content creators in need of a powerful docking station, the Anker 568 and 778 can easily upgrade a user’s workspace with new connectivity including USB4 (568) and Thunderbolt 4 (778) capable ports. These new connectivity options ensure a user’s needs will be met as they upgrade to USB4 and Thunderbolt 4 capable devices but also ensure backward compatibility with those laptops and peripheral devices with previous generations of USB and Thunderbolt.
This is also ideal for enterprise organizations beginning to upgrade hardware from older users within the company while ensuring backward compatibility.
By supporting the Thunderbolt 4 connection standard, the new Anker 778 docking station adds the ability to transfer data at a maximum of 40Gb/s, making it ideal for organizing and moving large audio and video files back and forth.
Additionally, with office workers becoming accustomed to using multiple devices both at the office as well as at home, both docking stations support high-speed charging for laptops and other devices up to 100W as well as offering dual 30W charging ports so users can charge their other mobile devices and peripherals while using the other functions of the hub.
High Quality Output Resolution
The Anker 568 and Anker 778 offer the ability to simultaneously output to multiple displays, so users can enjoy stunning visuals on up to three or four displays at once, respectively.
The Anker 568 USB-C Docking Station offers triple display connectivity, outputting media to one monitor at 8K@30Hz via either of the two DisplayPort connections or up to three displays at 4K@30Hz, when connecting using the HDMI port for a third monitor.
The Anker 778 offers quadruple monitor connectivity, allowing users to output media to a single display at 8K@30Hz or 4K@60Hz using the Thunderbolt 4 port or up to three additional displays at 4K@30Hz while utilizing the HDMI and dual DisplayPort ports.
Innovative Remote Management
The Anker 568 and 778 both offer enterprise users access to the Anker Dock Manager, remote management software. Using the Anker Dock Manager allows enterprise IT departments to easily deploy, manage and remotely upgrade hardware more efficiently as well as access user manuals, guides, and FAQs for issues and diagnosis.
